FinInG – Finite Incidence Geometry

This package provides:

For further information see:


FinInG requires the following packages: GAPDoc, GenSS, forms, GRAPE, orb, io, and cvec. The DESIGN package is not required to load FinInG, but is needed to use some particular functions for generalised polygons. The required packages are all available through the website of GAP, and are usually installed by default. However, for some of these packages, compilation might still be required. The complete installation procedure is explained in the INSTALL file, and in the FinInG manual. Here we continue with the summary for the experienced or impatient user.

Just unpack one of the archives in the “pkg” subdirectory of your GAP installation. The archive is available in several formats:


Unpacking generates a subdirectory “fining”. If the dependencies are satisfied, you can load the package by typing in the GAP command line “LoadPackage(“fining”);”. All documentation and examples are included.

Have a lot of fun!
